Earth is Art
by Jassi Oberai
There is a famous quote by Yann Arthus Bertrand - "The Earth is Art; the Photographer is only a witness." And I love being the witness to that art called the Earth. I have always felt a  strong connection with nature and there is nothing more satisfying than getting up before the break of dawn and waiting for that blissful moment when the light is just perfect to make that moment eternal. Why do I shoot nature? This question has always made me feel at loss with words. For me nature photography is my way of meditating; my being one with the calmness of mother nature with time coming to standstill. All you hear is the sound of gushing water streams and chirping birds. Here I present some images from various places trying to share the awesomeness of this beautiful nature. These images are a reflection of my own self, my way of showing the world what I SEE. You cannot playback any sound of nature in still images but you can feel the emotion that brings back the essence of that very moment when the photograph was clicked.
